Q: We had a bank employee deliver cash over $10,000 to a customer per the customer's request. Do we have to include our bank employee on the Currency Transaction Report? 

A: No, the bank employees are not considered conductors. Individuals that give or receive currency as a function of its agency relationship with a financial institution is not a transactor for the purposes of CTR requirements. Click here for more information (see footnote 4).
